Commentary from Magazine of Art

“Pot-Luck,” by Mr. T. Faed, R. A., engraved on p. 13, was exhibited in the Academy in 1866, and in the artist's opinion, expressed in a letter kindly grant- ing the permission to reproduce it for illustration in this article, it is "about the best picture I have ever painted." The group of fowls is painted in a manner that would do credit to any animal painter of the day while the colour of the picture as a whole is particularly rich, and the handling exceedingly powerful.
